Twin cities, also known as sister cities, are collaborations between two cities for boosting friendship and understanding between different cultures, and to form strategic international business links.
TCWTA plans to support and increase tourism and travel between the two cities, support and increase the exchange of ideas and concepts related to tourism and travel, and enhance and strengthen relations between the two destinations through tourism and travel.
The association’s founding president, Thomas Binder, the Mayor of Gossau-Zurich in Switzerland, will formally make the announcement at the Twin Cities World Tourism Forum during PTM 2018.
TCWTA also aims to publish a Twin Cities Almanac to be presented at ITB Berlin, which will include an editorial note of the president, reports on the tourism and travel activities of twin cities, and interviews with mayors of twin cities on topics like desiderata, plans, projects and the tourism development of twin cities.
The TCWTA president is expected to visit a developing country in Africa or Asia once a year for research opportunities or to take part in projects for supporting tourism and travel in twin cities located in regions without large financial funds.
